3:00am
>> and i'm kate bolduan. breaking news across the world. that violence erupting in egypt. and over the atlantic, a tropical storm brewing, possibly heading for the u.s. we are covering it all. we're going to begin with the crash of flight 214. cnn has learned this was the first time the pilot had ever attempted a landing at san francisco international airport in a boeing 777. we're also learning more about the two teen-aged girls from china who died in saturday's fiery crash. for the first time we're seeing their photos. they were on their way to a summer church camp in los angeles, we know that. but now a shocking question. could one of them have been killed after the plane had already come down? >> more details coming out really. it seems like every minute we're learning something more about this. we also want you to look at this, cnn exclusive video of the moment the plane crashed. the only known video of this at this time. this is the moment the plane hit that sea wall, and you see what
3:01am
happens right after. in the moment the plane then spun out of control, rising almost vertically at one point. and there is yet another plane crash overnight to tell you about. this one in alaska. ten people are dead. we have these stories covered like no one else with a team of correspondents and analysts standing by. first let's get to miguel marquez live from san francisco international airport on that asiana flight. more on this. miguel, what is the latest? what are you hearing about the investigation? >> reporter: kate, in addition to that video, that exclusive video that cnn has showing the way this plane came in so low and crashing, we do know this pilot had only piloted a 777 nine times in total. investigators are now trying to figure out why that plane came in so steep and so slow. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: this morning a stunning revelation. asiana airlines saying at the controls of the doomed flight was the co-pilot with only 43
3:02am
hours of experience in the 777, and he had neverlanded a 777 at san francisco before. though he was a veteran pilot with about 10,000 hours of flying time. >> oh, lord have mercy. >> reporter: this was considered a training flight. flight 214 clipping the sea wall, sliding down the runway, and pinwheeling at one point, almost fully vertical, then erupting into a cloud of dust and smoke. >> i was watching it come in, and my initial reaction was that it was trying to avert the landing. >> reporter: officials say the pilot tried to increase speed seven seconds before impact. at four seconds, the 350-ton plane's shake stick device jolted violently, a warning the massive jet was going too slowly, stalling. >> i looked out through the window, and i knew we were too low. >> reporter: just 1 1/2 seconds before many sslamming into the
3:03am
wall, the pilot called to abort the landing. >> there is no discussion of any aircraft anomalies or concerns. >> reporter: these new ntsb photos show seats crushed and jumbled together. amazing so many survived. >> everybody screamed. dark and most of ash. everywhere is ash. >> reporter: some passengers thrown from the plane, suffering road rash from skidding along the runway. >> we got there within three minutes. there were flames coming off the plane. >> reporter: the parents of two teenage girls killed in the crash grief stricken, their daughters headed for summer camp here in california. more than a dozen are still hospitalized, two of them paralyzed. still such a violent crash and so few injuries and deaths. >> it is nothing short of a miracle that we had literally 123 people walk away from this. >> reporter: a miracle prompting many questions. >> oh, my god. oh, my god.
3:04am
>> reporter: and adding to the tragedy of all of this, the san mateo county coroner here saying one of those young women who died may have been hit by an emergency vehicle as it was rushing to the plane. it's not clear whether that person was already dead when the vehicle may have hit it. the mayor responding to it all saying he knows emergency responders were trying as hard as possible to get to that plane, and it was a very, very chaotic scene. chris? >> a lot to be learned, miguel. thank you for your reporting this morning. let's bring in mary scalvo, former head of the department of transportati transportation. a lot of questions here, first, this was a training flight. not really, right? is the pilot had thousands of hours. he was just relatively new to this type of aircraft, correct? >> that's correct. he had to be chekt out. he had to have the appropriate number of hours to participate
3:05am
in this flight in the cockpit of the aircraft. but what they say when they mean training flight is he was building additional hours on the aircraft. yes, he was qualified, or it wouldn't have been legal to take off. >> important distinction, right? >> important distinction, but the number of hours is important. as you build hours and get familiarity with your aircraft, you do get more expertise, get comfort at the controls, and you really do feel better, and the plane is responding to certain environments. it was highly significant this was the first landing at sfo, particularly many can youing across water and over the sea wall. >> when you look at those combination of factors in this particular airport, what strikes you as you see the video? >> what strikes me as i see the video is that seven seconds before impact, they knew they were low and slow. they were going too slow, under the recommended guidelines for the speed of the plane, and they were way too low what's called the glide path. at that time, had they done
3:06am
something, they would have had a chance. when they tried to do evasive maneuvers or give themselves more time at 1.5 seconds, it was too late. there was no time. >> do you know if they had been on autopilot, it would have been easier? >> it would have because autopilot corrects those features, putting in, in layman's terms, your air speed, throttle, altitude. if they needed additional air speed or altitude while on autopilot, it would have corrected it kicked in the power they needed, it would have helped. >> what they called at the last second a fly around, would that have been possible at that point? is >> at that point, it would not have been possible. they were too low and probably about to strike or had already struck the sea wall. at that point, the air speed was dissipated so much, they wouldn't have gotten back up again anyway. literally four seconds out, just before they hit the sea wall, at that point, the best they could do is try to avert a complete disaster and great loss of life. if they were going to avert it,
3:07am
it had to be well before they got to that sea wall. >> and at that point, once they hit that ground, they just got lucky that so many people walked away. >> they got lucky, and many things in the plane help people to survive. the survivability factors have increased dramatically the last 15 years. >> there's a lot to be seen in this video. we're going to break it down in the 7:00 hour with mary as we go through piece by piece. thanks for giving us the top line. >> thank you. >> a lot of the focus is how this happened, but also we want to talk this morning about who this happened to. we're hearing from survivors of the crash from the moment of impact to the terrifying moelts of chaos and confusion in the aftermath. cnn's kyung lah has some of those stories. >> holy -- >> reporter: the crash stunned people watching in horror. on board the plane, passenger eugene rah had only one thought. >> i thought that was it. i thought i'm dying. >> reporter: rah had landed in san francisco hundreds of times.
3:08am
this was his 173rd flight on asiana air. >> the entire aircraft was so quiet just for a few seconds. i smell something burning and see the smoke and dust. >> reporter: his daughter eunice was waiting to pick up her father, frantically texting him. he didn't reply. >> i could see the smoke. i could see the plane. >> reporter: and you knew your dad was on that plane? is >> yeah. >> reporter: then relief. her father texted these pictures, his plane burning. fellow passengers terrified and running, then lying injured on the tarmac. and this 100-pound flight attendant, rah says carried the injured to safety on her back. this woman was seated in row 40. she dragged her 4-year-old off the plane. >> to the right of the plane chair, it's a bathroom.
3:09am
yes, most of the bathroom is gone. >> reporter: ben levy was also near the back of the plane. >> somebody helped me to open the door. there was no sign. at that point, i'm ushering people out. i'm screaming to everybody, we're okay. we're fine. help each other out. get out. >> reporter: these survivors largely have superficial wounds. eugene rah has cuts to his chin and pain in his jaw, but as we talk at his home near san francisco's airport, rah has a more serious injury you can't see. what is it like to hear the plane fly overhead now? >> i feel like puke, honestly. i feel like throw-up when i hear that. >> reporter: a wound that may never heal. kyung lah, cnn, san francisco. >> so we have the ntsb looking into this flight in san francisco, and they're also investigating another devastating plane crash at the same time. this one you're looking at happened sunday at a small
3:10am
airport in alaska. the plane involved much smaller than the jumbo jet in the san francisco accident, but the results even deadlier, all ten on board killed. rene marsh is live in the washington bureau with details. what do we know about this crash? >> chris, first of all, i should tell you the ntsb go team is expected to be headed there in a matter of minutes. the scheduled time is 6:15, and they're en route to that route on the screen. it's too early to know what caused the plane's crash here, and also the plane went up in flames. so we don't know what caused all of this. what we do know is this was an air taxi. when it comes to faa regulations, it comes just under commercial planes. commercial airliners, they're heavily regulated. this would be a middle tear. again, we're expecting a briefing from ntsb when they get on the ground. chris? >> all right. thank you very much, rene. all these crashes happening right now makes it seem so
3:11am
scary. remember, you have a 1 in 45 million chance, 1 out of 45 million of being in a plane crash. being struck by lightning, 1 in 750,000. it's still a very safe way to fly. we'll take you through that crash in san francisco even more in the coming hours of the show. >> so much happening really in one weekend. and a lot happening around the world. we want to take you to another big story, violent clashes in egypt. overnight, witnesses say the egyptian military fired on supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi, killing more than 40 people and injuring more than 300. tens of thousands have taken to the streets since morsi was removed from power last week in support and opposition. cnn's ro reza is live in egypt. what is it like now? it looks like it's just threatening to go into chaos. >> reporter: things are calm right now, kate, but chaotic overnight hours.
3:12am
at this point, i don't think anyone knows how this conflict is going to end. we do know things got a whole lot uglier overnight. 42 killed, more than 300 injured in clashes between supporters of the ousted president, mohamed mor morsi, and security forces. the clashes taking place before dawn and in front of the headquarters. this is where mr. morsi is reportedly being held in custody. all sorts of conflicting reports, who started this, who fired first. the military saying it was protesters who fired first. protesters saying, no, we're not armed. it was the security forces who fired on us. they're also saying they fired during morning prayers. the aftermath was ugly, many of the victims rushed to a nearby hospital, the fatalities placed on the ground covered with blankets. this is the deadliest incident since mr. morsi was ousted. we're already seeing the fallout. the ultra-conservative islamist
3:13am
group, the nur party, there was a coalition to establish the interim government. they've already said, we're out in protest of what happened today. uncertain times, guys, in the days to come. chris, kate? >> reza, thank you so much. a lot going on today. now we want to take you up to quebec where an engine shutdown may be the cause of a freight train derailment and massive explosion. at least five people were killed, about 40 people remain unaccounted for this morning. cnn's paula newton is live in lac-megantic, quebec. paula, what do we know? >> reporter: the main thing we know is those tankers full of crude oil are finally being extinguished. that means investigators can move in and unfortunately start the grim work of looking for the missing. for too many there was simply no escape. an inferno so intense it incinerated everything in its path. minutes before, the unmanned runaway train pulling 72 tankers filled with crude oil went careening into the town of
3:14am
lac-megantic, derailed with unimaginable consequences. earth shaking explosions followed, the fire burning for a full 36 hours. the devastation was apocalyptic, the silence ominous. there was no word of sons and daughters who never made it home, friends and family that, yes, vanished. town officials say some were likely vaporized by the sheer intensity of the blaze. >> of course, we are working hand in hand with the coroner's office and the victim unit in quebec to talk to the families. all bodies were transported to montreal forensics to be expertised. >> reporter: the fire utterly consumed the very heart of this town in every way. waiting for word of the missing has been excruciating. >> we're numb. we're just numb. >> reporter: canada's prime minister stephen harper toured the devastation and foreshadowed
3:15am
the grim news that is sure to come. >> i know there is going to be waves of emotion over the next few weeks as the extent of this -- and this is a very big disaster in human terms -- as the extent of this becomes increasingly obvious. >> reporter: what's not obvious is the montreal, main, and atlantic rail way company baseded in the united states, they're saying, look, we don't know what happened here. most likely, there was some kind of brake failure. obviously, you have this train careening into a small town. you know, kate and chris, these small towns, these junctions all the way in north america, u.s., canada -- this train was headed into the united states -- a lot of questions about rail safety and the safety of those tankers, how quickly they can leak or explode. a lot more crude and petroleum products moving around our two countries. >> paula newton following it all. paula, thank you so much. that video, there's a lot of amazing video we're seeing today, but that video with the
3:16am
plumes of dark, thick smoke, absolutely terrifying that we're watching. a lot of other stories developing at this hour. let's get straight to michaela for the headlines. good morning to you. a major health scare for teresa heinz kerry, the wife of secretary of state john kerry. she is in critical but stable condition at a boston hospital this morning. she became ill at the family's vacation home in nantucket on sunday. the family isn't saying what the illness is, but they're asking for privacy. the 74-year-old was treateded for breast cancer in 2009. people evacuated from they are homes in arizona are being allowed home. and an emotional homecoming for the 19 fallen granite hot shots. 19 hearses making their way from the medical examiner's office in phoenix, through yarnell where they died, and finally home to
3:17am
prescott. cuban president raul castro backing offers for asylum for nsa leaker edward snowden, but he didn't say whether cuba would make its own offer. now venezuela, bolivia, and nicaragua offering asylum. there are no direct flights. the usual route involves changing planes in havana. a man will be arraigned this morning in massachusetts in the case of murder involving former intend patriot aaron hernandez. prosecutors say earnest wallace was there the night lloyd odin was killed. meanwhile, they're concerned aaron hernandez is in solitary confinement. they say it's torture because he's alone in a cell 20 hours a day. and finally, the running of the bulls in pamploma, spain. four people were injured. this is the news, though, nothing serious, according to
3:18am
local officials. as these things go, a relatively safe day in pamplona, nobody was gored. that is the headline because some of these bulls weigh 1,400 pounds and they're not very happy and they're chasing you, and you don't have horns. >> and the worst part is you've got people smacking them with newspapers, the cobblestones are really sick. when i was there in that, the only reason i didn't get hit -- >> you didn't run? >> oh, i ran. i ran faster than any time i've ever run in my life. my screams were so high, they distracted the bulls. >> we had this conversation about the types of people that would do that, and we didn't even think of you. >> i would absolutely do that. that is a bucket list item. >> oh, no. >> like moving on. it's 6:18 now. coming up on "new day" after the break, a big week in the george zimmerman trial. the defense resumes its case. remember they have to prove this was self-defense. it's unusual, but the big moment, you're looking right
3:19am
there, that was trayvon martin's mother. when the defense started, they put on george zimmerman's mother. at issue, whose voice on the 911 tape? who connected better with the jurors? we'll tell you. plus we're learning more about the south korean pilot who was at the controls at the moment the plane crashed. here's some of that cnn exclusive video. we're going to break down this stunning video of the crash and what it could tell investigators coming up. mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004.

3:22am
welcome back. the critical day three of the trayvon martin murder trial resumes today. trayvon martin's mother took the stand, tearfully identifying the screams on the tape as coming from her son. but then zimmerman's mother took the stand identifying the screams as her son. >> reporter: six women, five of them mothers, it comes down to this question, who do they
3:23am
believe the most? and there's the issue of the medical examiner, who we heard from friday, who told the court he doesn't remember anything. a rare moment of emotion from george zimmerman in the courtroom as this week of testimony could see more family on the stand to testify on his behalf. friday zimmerman was visibly affected, listening to his uncle explain when he heard those highly scrutinized screams for help on a 911 audiotape. >> i said, that is george, and i stood up and looked at the tv. >> reporter: also, zimmerman's mother. >> do you know whose voice that was screaming in the background? >> yes, sir. >> and whose voice was that? >> my son george. >> and are you certain of that? >> because he's my son. >> reporter: it was a day of duelling testimonies between mothers. gladys zimmerman testified after sabrina fulton told the court what she heard before the fatal shot that killed her son.
3:24am
>> ma'am, that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? is >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> reporter: martin's older brother, jahvaris fulton, also testified the screams were from his brother, but in cross-examination, fulton was put on the spot for once telling a reporter he wasn't positive about who was screaming, only later to conclude it was trayvon martin. for most of day nine, jurors listened to the medical examiner who did the autopsy on martin. >> i believe he was alive for one to ten minutes after he was shot. >> reporter: but when challenged by the defense, the doctor admitted he only recently reached that opinion. just three weeks earlier, he said he thought martin was alive only one to three minutes after the shooting. defense attorneys also pointed out how bao's team may have mishandled and even damaged some evidence. when asked to recall specifics
3:25am
about the autopsy, there was this. >> i do not have any recall. i do not have any memory of the day of autopsy. >> reporter: attorney mark o'mara asked the judge to acquit his client after the state's case, arguing prosecutors had not proved second degree murder. judge deborah nelson denied that motion. >> motion for acquittal denied. >> reporter: putting the defense on deck as this trial moves into week three. as we launch into week three, we expect to see more family and friends. we could see the lead investigator for the sanford police department recalled to testify, and we could hear from a forensic pathologist, an expert in this field. >> remember detective cirino was one of the detectives early on when they decided not to charge zimmerman with anything. >> a lot to talk about.
3:26am
there's also a new tropical storm to talk about brewing in the atlantic headed for the caribbean. let's get to chad myers for more on that. what is its trajectory? >> eventually towards martinique, maybe domenica. normally, july 8th the first named storm on average. where are we now? chantal, the third named storm. already getting a big start. here's martinique right here. expect that big storm to almost be a 50 or 60 mile an hour storm as it approaches the mountains. did you see that wave come? we did the wave on "new day" right here. it comes in, still 65 miles per hour. this matters where this is on the map. if we're on the south side of the cone, the storm gets stronger, the water's warmer, and it's not affected by the mountains of haiti, the dar, and also cuba. if it's brushing the turks and
3:27am
caicos and heads out to the ocean. we don't know yet because the models don't know yet. these are the spaghetti lines. some models are to the left, some to the right. we'll see where it goes in the next couple of years. the third storm of the year. the first hurricane shouldn't happen for another month. this has the potential, some pretty warm water right now, and it's on its way. as the summer gets hotter, september 10th, the middle, the peak of hurricane season. >> i feel like we hit summer early. might be hitting the peak of hurricane season early. chad, great to see you. thank you so much. >> one thing you never want to come early is storm season. coming up on "new day," the investigation of the san francisco airport plane crash. just look at it. can you believe that just about everybody walked away. two people killed, a couple paralyzed. how could it have happened? why did it happen in the first place? we're going to take you through exclusive video. we'll have an expert here who will say what it means to investigators. plus their long wait is finally over. britain finally has a wimbledon

3:35am
the crowd at the mgm was stunned. chris, i'm sure you're pretty stunned watching this. >> i am stunned. i think that andrew silva is the best fighter in mixed martial arts in the ufc. the theory is this guy has gotten bored of fighting against guys, and he played too much with a guy who had too much power and got put on his back. good night. >> undefeated no more. >> do not underestimate your opponent. >> andy, thanks so much. great to have you with us. still to come on "new day," exclusive amateur video of the deadly plane crash in san francisco. what we can learn about the crash from this footage. we have analysts and experts come to go help us out with that. let's play:

3:39am
welcome back to "new day," everybody. we're learning new details about the tragic crash of asiana flight 214 that killed two 16-year-old girls when, as we all saw, it crashed saturday at san francisco international airport. cnn has obtained this, exclusive amateur video of the aircraft. it captures the moment the aircraft hit the sea wall and goes out of control. our john berman is here now to break down that tape and tell us what can be learned, what can be learned from investigators. amazing we have it at all. >> the phrase we keep hearing is too low and too slow. plus a call to go around and land again apparently coming seconds too late. and the one thing that's crystal clear listening to witnesses and analysts this morning as asiana flight 214 approached the runway in san francisco, you could tell something was terribly wrong. >> look at that one. look how his nose is up in the air.
3:40am
>> reporter: from the ground, many eyewitnesses knew this was no ordinary landing. >> air traffic control, they gave the crew of the asiana flight a visual clearance. >> you see the plane coming in from the right side, approximately where the end of the runway is. you can see how low the plane is below the glide slope it should be on. you can draw the line and see that it's not even going to make it to the runway. >> a call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds prior to impact. the speed was significantly below 137 knots, and we're not talking about a few knots. >> reporter: the nose starts coming up. he obviously knows that he's below and he's going to end up short of that runway, and he pulls the nose up, which is the wrong thing to do. and what that did is slow the aircraft down even more. >> the stick shaker occurs
3:41am
approximately four seconds prior to impact. >> the stick shaker is a system on the plane that gives a warning to the pilot that you're going too slow. >> there was a call out for a go around from one of the crew at 1.5 seconds prior to impact. that means they want to not land, but apply power and go around and try to land again. >> the go around call was just useless at that point. it was a done deal. they were already committed to a horrific outcome. >> reporter: remarkably, most of the passengers and crew walked away from this crash. >> if the plane was just a few feet lower when it hit the sea wall, i think we'd be looking at a much more tragic result. >> you look at these pictures again and again, it really is a miracle so many people walked away, although 2 people killed, 180 injured. analysis of the flight's data recorders continue this morning.
3:42am
we expect another briefing by the ntsb later today. >> it's really important, when we look at this video, to figure out what can we learn from this? is it as simple as what the pilots did? is it something with the plane? do they have to change something? as we've been talking all morning, kate, this happens to infrequently. >> you did make a great point. we've already learned, i feel like in just a couple days, more information than i think we've heard in early moments of previous crashes. >> we have pictures and living witnesses and survivors. i think those things are key. >> and it p happening at an airport was fundamental, a lot of cameras, a lot of access. coming up on "new day," an improbable play date. help me out with this one. what happens when you combine a baby chimp, two tiger cubs, and a wolf pup. >> you're going to find out. it's our must see moment. my name is mike and i quit smoking. chantix... it's a non-nicotine pill. i didn't want nicotine to give up nicotine.

3:51am
welcome back to "new day," everybody. let's start with the political gut check. all the stories you need to know coming straight out of washington and, of course, from around the world. first, new york city voters are being asked to give a disgraced politician a second chance, not once, but twice. cnn's chief national correspondent john king is here to break it down for us. it's almost like deja vu in a very short amount of time, one big city, two political scandals. now eliot spitzer is asking voters to give him a second chance, wanting to be new york city comptroller. i'm sitting here wondering, do you think spitzer saw the bump in the polls for anthony weiner and thought, hey, if he can do it, i can. >> reporter: there's no surprise here. since eliot spitzer left the governor's office, he thought if
3:52am
there's an opportunity for redemption and to get back into public service, he would want to do it. it's a big question for new york city. anthony weiner running for mayor, and now eliot spitzer wanting to be the city's top money guy, if you will, at a time when mayor bloomberg is fading from the scene. watch for opponents. how negative do they get? how quickly do they bring up personal stuff, or do they make the case, look, it's time for new york generationally to turn the page. that's what you'll hear from opponents. we need new leadership. the mayor is leaving. anthony weiner said, no, you need experience. yes, we've made mistakes. judge us by what we did in office, not just the personal stuff. >> interesting, though, the personal stuff does weigh in when you're running for office. that's always the case. we have to ask you about the big building we have behind you now, congress, finally heading back after the july 4th break. two big things on their plates that they could not get done before they left. immigration reform as well as making this fix to student loan hikes. first on immigration, from the little we heard from the lawmakers on some of the sunday
3:53am
shows, i'm really wondering if the july 4th break brought any shift in momentum when it comes to house republicans. what do you sense? >> and you both know this. when politicians go home for the break, they come back sometimes with a different mood. the key is not necessarily members who want a big sweeping bill. the key is house members who have been opposing, say, a path to citizenship, who have been demanding more border security measures. did they hear anything back home that tells them they need to change their mind? if the answer is no, it gets hard to get a big sweeping bill through the house. on immigration, what's going to happen in the house is going to frustrate democrats. there's no way the house of representatives is going to pass something to president obama's liking. it's the warm-up act, if you will. democrats have to bite their tongue. the main goal is to get a bill through the house, even if they don't like it, to try to get into a summertime negotiation where you take the senate bill and the house bill and try in round two to get something that satisfies enough of everybody. watch what happens here. especially, again, the tea party lawmakers, the conservatives, who say they don't want a path
3:54am
to citizenship. we'll know if they got a different message back home. >> we're going to assist you in the come on congress campaign. this student loan thing, they need to be on it every day. they can fix it. they know it was a mistake. you can't compromise education in the country. they need to fix it. they keep saying it's easy because it will be retroactive. what do we know what the momentum is on this, and what are the chances it gets done any time soon? >> it's the but part. when you have the republican leadership, the democratic leadership, everybody saying it was a mistake those rates to go up. we're going to cut it back to 3.4%. we're going to do it retroactively. we'll take care of it. feel comfortable, right? except it's the united states congress. they all agree on the goal, but they still have differences on how to get there. chris, here's my biggest question mark. they're going to get here on the student loan issue if they stay in a vacuum. there' so many potential toxins in the water. they're going to get back to the debt ceiling, back to the budget. we just talked about
3:55am
immigration. in the senate, there are a bunch of obama nominees the republicans don't like, and there's a big fight over the rules. does this become hostage to the other dynamics, or can they just say we're going to break it off and get it done? great question. >> also, they're just coming off a break. to remind everybody, this is now the crunch period. they're trying to rush everyone in because they want to take all of august off. >> they want to go home for the summer. kate, it's not just the normal summer break. next year is the midterm election year. this sounds silly to most americans. why can't we worry about the election when we're in the election year? that's your united states congress. they're trying to get out the door as quickly as possible to get home. everything they do in 2013, they're running through the calculation, how is this going to affect me in 2014? >> it's not just the fix, it's the focus. these people and families who need the money to get to school, it's clear they're not at the top of the agenda. >> where is the priority? >> it's a bad message. we've got to be on them. make them do this, john. >> print those bumper stickers. >> come on congress campaign.
3:56am
great to see you, john. thank you. you hear that music, you know what it means. it's time for the rock block, a quick round-up of the stories you'll be talking about today. first block in the newspapers in the new york times, an unexpected problem for states that allows school employees to carry concealed weapons. insurance companies threatening to reduce premiums or decline coverage all together. on "usa today," a surprising study about babies. putting babies on their backs to reduce the incidence of sids has a surprising side effect, flat spots on their heads. and "orlando sentinel," a man arrested on a flight to key west. the man became verbably abusive when asked to turn off his electronic devices. >> this is the come on people campaign. >> you know you have to turn it off. if you get loud on the flight, you're going to lose. i don't get it. poppy harlow here with the business news. you learned a rule. you went with the bad news one
3:57am
day. >> i try always good news. it is good news this morning. pointing higher before the market opens. very busy week ahead. stocks finished significantly higher last week. green across the board. we like to see that. big gains for the dow, nasdaq, s&p 500. interesting news out of disney. this movie that could have been a blockbuster, not so much. it could lead to a big budget loss. "the hollywood reporter" says the lone ranger, box office experts telling them and rival studios saying that film could lead to a loss of more than $150 million for disney. here is what i think is the most interesting story of the morning in terms of business news. chinese buyers flooding the u.s. housing market paying top dollars for our homes. look at those numbers. 18% of all homes bought in this
3:58am
country, over $68 billion of homes bought by foreign buyers being bought by the chinese. we're seeing this trend postally in california. 70% of them paying all in cash. we're seeing a michaela trend for trying to sell a home in california. good news for someone trying to sell. >> let's get to chad myers for what you need to know before you head out the door. >> skies look blue now. didn't look blue yesterday. planes didn't get to where they wanted to be. flights are going to be tight. stand by for most of you. that empty seat is going to be filled. get ready for that kind of travel today. all the planes will be filled, at least for the first couple of hours this morning, trying to get planes back in the air that didn't get there or got cancelled or delayed. chicago, you'll see delays in the next hour as a line of weather walks your way. i'll tell you what, it will be a decent day for a lot of people. flying by 5:00, 6:00 tonight will start to get bumpy again. >> we'll watch it. chad, thank you so much. we're near the top of the hour,
3:59am
which, of course, you know means top of the hour news. you could see the front end pop up and then slam down and then big explosion. >> pilot in training. we have exclusive video of the moment asiana flight 214 crashed, and new details this morning. the pilot at the controls had neverlanded that plane at that airport before. we break it all down. >> the victims. new details on the two girls who lost their lives. did one of them survive the crash only to be run over by an emergency vehicle on the ground? egypt erupts. violence explodes overnight. dozens killed. hundreds injured. supporters of the deposed president not giving up. we're live in cairo with the latest. >> your "new day" starts right now.
4:00am
>> what you need to know. >> i do not have any memory of the day of autopsy. >> what you just had to see. >> they're very soft. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, kate bolduan, and michaela pereira. good morning. welcome back to "new day," it's monday, july 8th, 7:00 in the east. i'm kate bolduan. >> and i'm chris cuomo joined by friend and news anchor michaela pereira. deadly violence in egypt, a plane crash in alaska, a tropical storm brewing, possibly heading for the u.s. we're following it all with live team coverage, the cnn way, from cairo to canada. first, brand new details this morning on that deadly asiana air crash at san francisco international airport. we're learning it was the pilot's first time landing a boeing 777 in san francisco.
4:01am
he only had 43 hours landing that kind of plane. >> you're also learning more about the two teenage girls, you see pictures of them there, who tragically lost their lives in the crash. they were heading to a church camp in los angeles from china, and one, they say, may have died on the ground after a crash in a horrible accident, something they're looking very closely at. >> and then look at this. this is the cnn exclusive of the morning. this is the video that shows the moment of impact, amateur video, obviously, but you will see the plane's approach, hitting the sea wall, and what happens afterwards. we're going to talk to the chairman of the ntsb about the crash investigation and what the evidence is showing so far. >> a lot to talk about. we're covering the story like no other network can from california right to new york. first let's get to california. cnn's miguel marquez at san francisco international airport. miguel, what is the latest with the investigation this morning? >> reporter: investigators are looking into exactly what was
4:02am
going on in the cockpit when the flight was coming in. this pilot had only piloted a 777 nine times before. in particular, they want to know why that plane was coming in so slowly. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: this morning a stunning revelation. asiana airlines saying at the controls of the doomed flight was the co-pilot with only 43 hours of experience in the 777, and he had neverland landed a 7t san francisco before. though he was a veteran pilot with about 10,000 hours of flying time. >> oh, lord, have mercy. >> reporter: this was considered a training flight. flight 214 clipping the sea wall, sliding down the runway, and pinwheeling at one point, almost fully vertical, then erupting into a cloud of dust and smoke. >> i was watching it it come in, and my initial reaction was it was trying to avert the landing.
4:03am
>> reporter: officials say the pilot tried to increase speed seven seconds before impact. at four seconds, the 350-ton plane's shake stick device jolted violently, a warning the massive jet was going too slowly, stalling. >> i looked out through the window, and i knew we were too low. >> reporter: just 1.5 seconds before slamming into the sea wall, the pilot called to abort the landing. >> there is no discussion of any aircraft anomalies or concerns. >> reporter: these new ntsb photos show seats crushed and jumbled together, amazing so many survived. >> everybody screamed. dark and most of ash, everywhere is ash. >> reporter: some passengers thrown from the plane, suffering road rash from skidding along the runway. >> we got there within three minutes. there were flames coming off the plane. >> reporter: the parents of two teenage girls killed in the crash, grief stricken, their daughters headed for summer camp
4:04am
here in california. more than a dozen are still hospitalized. two of them paralyzed. still such a violent crash and so few injuries and deaths. >> it is nothing short of a miracle that we had literally 123 people walk away from this. >> reporter: a miracle prompting many questions. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> reporter: and perhaps adding to the tragedy here is now news from the san mateo coroner's office here that one of those young women who died may have been hit by an emergency vehicle on the tarmac or on that part of the runway they were on as they were trying to get to the plane. the mayor here addressing this, saying it was a very chaotic scene there, and emergency responders were trying to get to the plane as quickly as possible. it is not clear even if she was hit by a vehicle, whether or not that killed her or the crash itself. chris? is >> miguel, thank you very much. we have mary schiavo with us again. she's inspector general of the
4:05am
department of transportation, aviation lawyer, an expert in this type of stuff. on the tape, we hear, oh, my god, oh, my god. may be the best explanation for how people survived this kind of crash, but for investigators like you in the ntsb, the question is why did it happen? how could it have been avoided? we take a look here, mary. the first thing we're going to see the is the approach. we're going to stop it on the approach because i want you to talk to me about what we call the attitude of the aircraft. when you look, what do you see here? is >> when you look, you can see something is going wrong. the plane is pointed up this way. at this point, you would expect to see more of this. we learned from the cockpit voice recording and the data flight recording that something called the stick shaker would be going off in just another second, which means you've got to get some air speed. you're in danger of losing the plane. you can see it right here that from the attitude of the plane, it's pointing up, and that's going to slow your air speed even more. they're low and slow, and that's a problem. >> less than 137 knots.
4:06am
we know they're going too slow. they should have known it also. >> 137 knots is very slow. there are small planes that have a landing speed of 137 knots. >> any understanding of how they would have been going that slowly? autopilot would have told them. so we assume they were doing it manually. why would they be going that slowly? is >> they had lost situational awareness at that point. you're supposed to constantly sweep your instruments. that's told at the very beginning of flight school, to stay on top of air speed, altitude, attitude, where your plane is, and to let your air speed deteriorate, it does remind us of other incidents recently, like the colgan crash in buffalo. >> three pilots lose awareness? >> right. >> we see it hit the sea wall. obviously, it was too low. we stop it again. what has happened? >> this is very telling. you can see this plane right here. this plane is in line waiting to taxi onto the runway to take off. you see at this point the plane was already hit here and hit
4:07am
here, way before the threshold, way before the landing point on the runway. so you can see at this point there is just no recovering this flight. when we listen to the cvr, the cockpit voice recorder and the data recorder, we know they did try to put in power or they did call for a go round at this point, but it's too late. that could not have been done, and we can see here they were still kind of nose up, but they already hit it and lost the tail. >> a second before they make impact, they say we want a go around, we want a fly around. you had told me earlier, too late for that. >> fancy, wonderful jet engines. these are great planes. i believe these were pratt whitney engines. it takes a while for them to get up to speed. it's not instantaneous. you don't just throttle up and get more power. >> that was just panic we're talking about? >> i'm afraid it's realizing they really were in trouble. >> this is the debris field i want to take a look at. this is the plane. we see what's happened here.
4:08am
the tail has come off. we have photos of it that really let you get a sense of what's going on with the debris field. it hit the sea wall. >> right. >> and we start to see how it's moving along through here. you look at these markers that we're about to see. here's the tail. obviously, the plane is coming across. you see these marks as very important. why? >> these marks are very important because you can see the markers on the set before them. that's the point where you're supposed to set the plane down. they had set it down, it hit the sea wall a couple hundred feet before that. you can see already here they lost control of the flight. this is the path of the flight right here off the runway. they shouldn't have even been touching down here. this is is telling because this is where other planes have touched down. >> is it was over before it again had begun. >> right. this is where planes literally hit their wheels when they land, and here you can see it was already over. >> lots of investigating left to be done. questions of bad judgment, whether or not there was any type of equipment involvement in
4:09am
this, of reading their instruments, but at the end of the day when you watch that video, when you see it happen to that plane and lift the nose up and it's done, can you believe so many people walked away? is >> it's remarkable so many people walked away, but when you see the landing sequence, the plane pitches up, and it ends up on the belly of the plane, that event allowed people to get off. the plane stayed on its belly. they could use the chutes. they could use the doors. the smoke we saw wasn't smoke. it was dirt. that was fortunate too. the fire did not happen until later in the sequence. that spelled the difference of so many lives. >> shout out to the crew, all the flight attendants able to get people off before the fire started. >> absolutely. i've had the opportunity to work with many flight attendants who have saved lives in crashes. the instant they realize something is going wrong, they start thinking what do i have to do to get these people out? there's one for every 50 passengers. that's the law. that's still a lot of people to get off the plane, but they have a lot to do, and there's also reports of one poor flight attendant was trapped, and
4:10am
the -- >> passengers got her out, and then she started helping. >> is they have to spring into action immediately, and they save lives. >> mary schiavo, thank you very much. kate? new this morning, we have brand new video from the ntsb from inside the wreckage. it shows the destroyed seats. you see it there, where people had to crawl out. you also see the debris field and even the landing gear. we're also this morning hearing from some of the passengers who lived through this terrifying or deal. you can only imagine if you were in this experience, what you would feel like this morning. here's cnn's kyung lah with some of their stories. >> holy [ bleep ]. >> reporter: the crash stunned people watching in horror. on board the plane, passenger eugene rah had only one thought. >> i thought that was it. i thought i'm dying. >> reporter: rah had landed in san francisco hundreds of times. this was his 173rd flight on asiana air. >> entire air traffic was so
4:11am
quiet, just for a few seconds. i smell something burning and see the smoke and dust. >> reporter: his daughter eunice was waiting to pick up her father, frantically texting him. he didn't reply. >> i could see the smoke. i could see the plane, and i saw -- >> reporter: you knew your dad was on that plane? >> yeah. >> reporter: then relief. her father texted these pictures. his plane burning. fellow passengers terrified and running. then lying injured on the tarmac, and this 100-pound flight attendant, rah says, carried the injured to safety on her back. wen ja was seated in row 40. she dragged her 4-year-old out the side of the plane. >> the hole is to the right of the plane chair. it's a bathroom. yes, most of the bathroom is gone. >> reporter: ben levy was also near the back of the plane. >> someone helped me to open the
4:12am
door. there was no sight. i'm telling everybody, you're okay. you'll be fine. help each other. get out. >> reporter: these survivors have superficial wounds. eugene rah has cuts to his chin and pain in his jaw, but as we talk near the san francisco airport, rah has a more serious injury you can't see. what is it like to see the planes fly overhead now? >> i feel like puke, honestly. i feel like throw up when i hear that. >> reporter: a wound that may never heal. kyung lah, cnn, san francisco. >> as if this crash wasn't enough, news of another plane crash in alaska. federal investigators headed to the scene after the plane went down in a fireball, killing all ten souls aboard. by the time firefighters and paramedics could arrive, the air
4:13am
taxi was already completely engulfed in flames. rene marsh is tracking the latest developments live from washington. >> reporter: the ntsb keeping very busy. another team en route to this crash site here in alaska. investigators say they don't know yet what caused the plane to catch fire and crash, but we do know this was an air taxi. when it comes to faa regulations, it's just understand commercial planes. commercial airliners are top tier. they're heavily regulated. and charter planes are second tier when it comes to regulation. now, ten people were on board. all ten died. the go team about do just as they're doing in san francisco, documenting the scene, and once they get on the ground, the ntsb tells us they'll likely have a preliminary briefing. chris? >> rene, thank you very much. going to need the information there as well. >> absolutely right. there's also violence to report overseas, flaring up overnight in cairo, violent, deadly clashes, leaving at least
4:14am
42 people dead and more than 300 injured. witnesses say the egyptian military opened fire on supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi. the latest attacks come just hours after egypt's interim president nominated a vice president and a prime minister to be serving. cnn's reza sayah is following these developments from cairo. reza, it seems there are two different versions from folks of how they believe this deadly violence started. >> reporter: yeah, and that's why it's tough to figure out exactly what happened, but an awful morning today here in egypt that shows this country could be going downhill. at least 42 killed, more than 300 injured in clashes between supporters of the ousted president mohamed morsi and security forces. the clashes taking place before dawn in front of the presidential guard headquarters. this is where the ousted president is reportedly being held in custody. all sorts of conflicting reports.
4:15am
who fired first? security forces saying it was an armed group of terrorists. they releaseded video reportedly showing protesters firing onto the security forces. protesters saying, no, we were not armed. it was security forces who fired first. they released their own video showing soldiers firing onto the crowds. we're working hard to verify exactly what happened. in the meantime, the aftermath, bloody, chaotic, hundreds of victims rushed to a nearby makeshift hospital. many of the fatalities placed on the ground with covered with blankets. the fallout is already here. one of the ultra-conservative islamist groups who was part of this critical coalition, charged with establishing this transitional government, they've already pulled out, condemning this incident. chris, kate? is >> all right, reza. the big question is what are they going to do now to quiet this down? reza sayah in cairo. even more news this monday.
4:16am
in the atlantic ocean, a tropical storm is forming. let's get to chat myers with the latest. what do we know about our friend chantal? >> the "c" storm, the third storm of the year. july 9th should be the first storm of the year. we're already way ahead. we knew the hurricane center said it was going to be a busy season. moving west at 30 miles per hour. just a minimal tropical form. it will head for the islands if you're going on a cruise ship or vacation, here it comes. itt ecould be south of haiti, b if it stays south, it could be a bigger problem, stay in the caribbean longer. problem with storms, once they get into the gulf of mexico, they're going to hit something. they're probably going to hit the u.s. too, unless it's just the yucatan. if it turns to the right and goes up, that's a big gutter ball. the tropical models not agreeing just yet. but as it gets closer and the storm gets into the caribbean, they'll agree a little bit more.
4:17am
there's chantal, talk about a busy season, a couple of clusters coming off africa as we get into this busy season. we could have 20 named storms. hurricane center says it's going to be a very busy hurricane season. >> is seeing that already. >> you bet. >> chad, thank you so much. there's a lot of news developing at this early hour. let's get straight to michaela for the early headlines. an engine shutdown may have caused the train derailment that led to a massive explosion in quebec. saturday's blast in the canadian town of lac-megantic left at lea least 2 people dead. 40 more are missing. an engine shutdown could have released the brakes that held it in place. teresa heinz kerry is in a hospital this morning. we've learned her symptoms are consistent with some kind of seizure, accord to go a source close to the family. the 74-year-old wife of secretary of state john kerry was rushed to a hospital in
4:18am

4:23am
welcome back to "new day," everyone. more gripping testimony expected today in the george zimmerman trial. after nine days, the prosecution rested its case friday amid very emotional and contradictory testimony coming from the mothers of trayvon martin and george zimmerman. cnn's george howell is live in sanford, florida, with more. what should we be expecting today, george? >> reporter: kate, good morning. we're talking about a jury of six women, five of them mothers. it really comes down to this question. which person do they believe the most? and there's also the issue of the medical examiner, who we heard from friday, who told the court without his notes, he doesn't remember anything. a rare moment of emotion from george zimmerman in the courtroom as this we can's testimony could see more family on the stand to testify on his behalf. friday zimmerman was visibly affected, listening to his uncle explain, when he heard those highly scrutinized screams for
4:24am
help on a 911 audiotape. >> i said, that is george. and i stood up and looked at the tv. >> reporter: also, zimmerman's mother. >> do you know whose voice that was screaming in the background? >> yes, sir. >> and whose voice was that? >> reporter: my son george. >> and are you certain of that? >> because he's my son. >> reporter: it was a day of duelling testimonies between mothers. gladys zimmerman testified after s sybriana fulton testified what she heard after that fatal shot. >> man, that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> reporter: trayvon martin's older brother also testified the screams were from his brother, but in cross examination, fulton was put on the spot for once telling a reporter he wasn't positive who was screaming only to later conclude it was trayvon
4:25am
martin. for most of day nine, jurors listened to the medical examiner who did the autopsy on martin. >> i believe he was alive for one to ten minutes. after he was shot. >> reporter: but dr. shiping bao admitted he only recently reached that opinion. just a few weeks earlier he said that martin was alive one to three minutes after the shooting. defense attorneys also point out how bao's team may have mishandled and even damage some evidence. when asked to recall specifics about the autopsy, there was this. >> i do not have any recall. i do not have any memory of the day of autopsy. >> reporter: attorney mark o'mara asked the judge to acquit his client after the state rested its case, arguing prosecutors have not proved second degree murder. >> the motion for acquittal is denied. >> reporter: putting the defense
4:26am
on deck as this trial moves into week three. and as we launch into week three, we could hear from more family and friends as the defense lays out its case over the next three or four days. could also see that lead investigator for the sanford police department, chris cirino recalled to the stand and hear from a forensic pathologist who is considered an expert in the field. >> george, thank you very much. beautifully laid out in your piece. appreciate it. as george says, the defense did decide to put up a case here. they don't have to. remember the burden is on the prosecution. unless you want to make your own case, which they are. the defense is making a case is the answer to that question, and it's for self-defense. let's run through the factors quickly and get to our pros. all in the family. the prosecutors put up trayvon's mother and his brother, very compelling testimony, emotional. they say it's him on that tape. the defense's first move, put on his family, george zimmerman's, and say, no, it's our, george's voice on there. who was more persuasive to the jury? big question. a pressing situation. why? the medical examiner's testimony
4:27am
basically comes down to where the gun was. if the gun was farther away, it goes with zimmerman's story that i wasn't trying to shoot him. he was trying to grab my gun, and i was doing something sudden. if it's pushed up against it, shows more intentionality by zimmerman. important. the medical examiner being a little bit all over the place, he not remembering that clothes shouldn't be put in a bag, all of that will go to his credibility with the jury. the wild card. okay, everybody believes george zimmerman won't testify, if you've been listening to the experts. but remember, a man who said ugly things about people like trayvon martin, had a weapon that had a bullet in the chamber, ignored 911 calls, and a kid winds up dead, the judge has said you have to take it to the jury. maybe george zimmerman will be his best witness. we don't know. we'll have to see. who's an advantage, the ups and downs of the day? let's let the pros decide. vinnie poll titan, legal expert
4:28am
i don't know where vinnie is. we got an upgrade. sunny hostin. thanks for being with us. we know danny zavalos, great criminal defense attorney. after the families testified, sunny, your take for that jury, you're looking at them, who was more impressive for them about the voice on the tape? is >> you know, it was interesting. i think that certainly they were with sybrina fulton when she was on the witness stand. they were also with george zimmerman's mother gladys zimmerman when she was on the witness stand. they were engaging. in my view, the person that they looked at the most, the person that they seemed to strain to hear was jahvaris fulton. all eyes were on jahvaris. remember that is trayvon martin's brother, and i've got to tell you, he was so eloquent, he was so elegant. the thought or the suggestion that this mother raised a thug in trayvon martin, i think, was dispelled.
4:29am
i think trayvon martin was put squarely in the courtroom on the witness stand as a reflection of his brother. so in my view, jahvaris fulton was sort of the star witness for the prosecution and the one person on the martin family that this jury was really engaged with. >> and a little bit of a surprise for the family, danny, because it seemed they changed tact and went after his credibility more than they expected to early on. but the questionable tactic and the question i put to you is the cross-examination of the mother. it has been criticized -- and i'm not one who gets into stylistic criticisms. for us here, it's about the goals of laying out the issues, but strategically, do you think it affected the case, or do you think the defense counsel is doing what he had to? >> absolutely. o'mara is doing -- he runs a far greater risk if you leave a witness on the stand and ask them zero questions. of course he's going to be criticized, but he did the right thing. he to take a calculated risk. that's what cross-examination is. you're not there to make
4:30am
friends. you're always running the risk of turning off a jury because the very nature of cross-examination is adversari l adversarial. you take that risk every single time you cross-examine a witness. he had to take that risk here. >> understood. sunny, you're shaking your head. let me give you something that now you have to deal with on the prosecution side of this in your analysis. your medical examiner, didn't you talk to this guy before? he comes up and is saying he doesn't remember the day. you should never put clothes in a bag. doesn't this guy work for the state? he's supposed to be their witness. how much do you think he hurt the prosecutor's case? >> i don't think he hurt the prosecution's case that much, but, wow, he was such a loose cannon. he was such a wild card. i was in the courtroom watching him, thinking he's a prosecutor's worst nightmare. he's sort of that runaway witness. you don't get to pick which medical examiner conducts the autopsy on the victim in a murder case, right? you don't get to pick that person as a prosecutor. if you did, you'd pick the best of the best. he had been qualified as an expert about 20 times, but he made so many rookie mistakes
4:31am
like making notes that he'd show no one, changing his expert opinion right before trial, a week before trial. there were so many of these rookie mistakes that were made. i'm sure that the prosecutor was shocked. we were all shocked. but i didn't get that sense from the jury because, remember, this is their first murder trial that they're sitting as a jury on. >> that's true. >> so they didn't seem to realize how crazy it appeared to all of us. >> and he did leave it open as to whether or not the gun could have been pressed or could have been far away. so it leaves doubt in terms of this idea, danny, that, oh, george zimmerman was just reaching for his gun. there was no intentionality. wasn't pushed up against it. last question to you. what does the defense need to prove to make this self-defense case make sense to the jury? what do they have to get done this week? >> they have to back up the effects they've already articulated. in several different iterations, either in phone calls or interviews that zimmerman has given. as far as witnesses, we can
4:32am
expect a couple of experts to shore up or counter the expert testimony on the prosecution side. i don't expect a very long case. the prosecution has the burden not only as to the crime itself, but they must disprove his self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt. >> one word answer from each of you to this question. danny, at this point, do you think george zimmerman takes the stand? >> can i say two? probably not. >> a little bit of a hedge gs but i'll give it to you because you're good looking. sunny? >> no. >> see, she's better look. that's why her answer was shorter. danny cevallos, thank you very muc much. sunny hostin, thank you very much. i'm going with the prosecution. here's why from what we heard from the experts and what we understand of the trial. this is a tough set of facts for george zimmerman to defend. that's why his defense is making an affirmative case of self-defense. remember they don't have to. the burden in our system is on the prosecution, guilt beyond a
4:33am
reasonable doubt. that's why you hear from prosecutors no other story makes as good as sense as ours. george zimmerman is saying ours makes better sense. it was self-defense. remember that jury was watching the mother cry about her dead son. a difficult thing to overcome. kate? >> chris, thanks so much. coming up next on "new day," we're following the latest on the deadly plane crash in san francisco. could the pilot's experience flying the 777 have played a role in the disaster? that's one of many questions. we've got a lot to talk about with the chair of the board investigating this crash coming up next. also, a celebrity chef's husband is calling it quits, telling her through a newspaper. why nigela lawson's marriage is now over.

welcome back, everybody. it's a new day. it is monday, july 8th. welcome back. i'm kate bolduan. >> and i'm chris cuomo, joined as always by our news anchor and friend michaela pereira. first, new details in the asiana air crash. the pilot making his first
4:37am
landing with a boeing 777 at san francisco international airport. you're taking a look right now at newly released video from the ntsb that shows the damage inside the plane as well as investigators combing through the wreckage. just look at that debris field. we also have new exclusive video to cnn that shows just how that landing, that crash all went down and also the blaze that followed. joining me to talk about this all and the very critical investigation under way is debra hersman, the chair of the national transportation safety board, heading this investigation. thank you so much for joining me this morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. you see in some of that video we had exclusively to cnn just how the plane made that landing. yesterday you said that you had not yet pinpointed the focus of your investigation. have you narrowed it down yet this morning? >> i'll tell you, from the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, we did get
4:38am
very good information about tell us about the last seconds in the cockpit. we know that seven seconds before impact the crew acknowledged in the cockpit to each other that they were slow. they had a target air speed of 137 knots, and they're acknowledging that they're below that. at four seconds they got a stick shaker activation, basically telling them the airplane was about to stall if they didn't take other action. and about 1.5 seconds before impact, they are calling out to each other for a go around, to abort the landing and go around. that information is very helpful to us as we try to piece together what happened in those last seconds. >> and, of course, not only what happened but also why did it happen? have you been able to narrow down if it was human error or it was some kind of mechanical error that you're narrowing your investigation to this morning? >> most of our investigations, we find that it's not just one
4:39am
thing. it really is a combination of factors that lead to an accident. if you eliminate any one of those, you can break that chain. what we find in our investigations is it's usually more complex. and so we're certainly looking at the crew, at how they operated, how they were trained, at their experience. we're also looking at the aircraft. we're looking to see if the crew was using automation or was flying on autopilot or they were hand flying the airplane. there are a lot of things we need to take a look at and information we need to corroborate. >> there are a lot of people wondering, asking questions this morning, as we learned last night the pilot handling the controls had been flying less than 45 hours of flying time in that type of aircraft. does that make a difference here in your investigation? what does that tell you as the lead investigator? >> you know, in many of the things that we look at in our investigations, these are data points. it's telling us how much experience the crew has in type, but also we want to look at overall experience. we want to look at their upgrade training, the types of aircraft
4:40am
that they've flown before. it's not unusual for crew to change aircraft types. this happens frequently, and some pilots fly multiple aircraft types. it's also not unusual for a pilot to come into an airport for the first time. they fly all around the world. but you have two pilots in that cockpit. you want to make sure that working together, that that pairing is effective and that they're communicating and coordinating their actions effectively. we want to take a look at all of those factors. >> do you see anything at this point that points to the fact that these pilots were not communicating well, that that pairing was not working well on this landing? >> no, but i will tell you in many of our investigations in the past, we have identified issues with -- as we see in this accident, stabilized approaches coming in safely. approach and landing is a very risky phase of flight, and we want to make sure that pilots
4:41am
are prepared for it, that they are on approach, that they're on path to get to the airport, and that they're working together effectively in this very high risk environment. >> one thing that we have heard, you've determined that the plane, we've heard this over and over again, was flying too low and too slow. you said the plane was at significantly lower, below the 137 knots that had been agreed upon for this landing. what is significantly lower? we're speaking in layman's terms obviously, but it's clearly critical to finding out why this happened. >> it is. it's important to understand why this happened. we know they were below 137 knots, and like i said yesterday in my press conference, we're not talking about a few knots here or there. we're actually talking about significantly below 137, but what we need to do now is really refine that raw data on the flight data recorder and corroborate it with the radar track data from air traffic
4:42am
control to get a good accurate speed. so that's important to us. i will tell you, when we look at these approach and landing accidents, monitoring is critical. making sure that your aircraft maintains its speed. as you're coming in, you're coming into an airport and you're slow. they had the engines at idle. they put the flaps down. they're going really slow. they're coming in to land. you've got to make sure you're on speed. >> deborah hersman, chair of the national transportation safety board. you are, unfortunately, tasked with a huge investigation before you, as you often are faced with in these very terrifying accidents. the only thing we can say is it's pretty amazing, and i'm sure you agree, that so many people were able to walk off this plane. >> absolutely. we are so thankful for the survivors and that we didn't have more fatalities and serious injuries. when you look at that aircraft, you just -- you really recognize how bad it could have been. for everyone out there, make
4:43am
sure you listen to the safety briefings and those flight attendants and you know how you're going to get out if you're in an emergency. >> deborah hersman, thank you so much. thank you for your time. a lot going on. she's got a big job ahead of her. >> they have to do it right. it doesn't make sense the speed was decreased. >> she's being very careful saying they're not pinpointing, not saying one person, one thing was behind this. may be multiple factors they're looking into. a lot of news happening right now. let's get straight to michaela for more headlines. unfortunately, we begin with another aviation tragedy. a team of investigators from the national transportation safety board is headed to alaska to investigate another plane crash. they're going to try to determine the cause of a small plane crash that killed ten people southwest of anchorage. the air taxi was fully engulfed in flames by the time paramedics arrived at the scene. it's not clear whether it was trying to take off or land when it crashed. terror overnight in cairo.

san francisco, good morning, miguel. >> good morning, kate. >> we have just gotten new video from the national transportation safety board. you can see the seats jumbled together and down at the bottom of your screen, if you can see it, it looks like some of the seats are crushed down. also one of the highlights, the landing gear down at the runway, both landing gears literally off
5:03am
of that plane as they hit that sea wall and were taken off as it was coming in. all this as investigators try to understand why this plane was moving so slowly. >> oh, my god. >> this morning, a stunning revelation. asiana airlines saying at the controls ofhe doomed flight was the copilot with only 43 hours of experience in the 777 and he has never landed a 777 at san francisco before. although he was a veteran pilot with about 10,000 hours of flying time -- >> oh, lord have mercy. >> this was considered a training flight. >> reporter: flight 214 clipping the sea wall and pinwheeling at one point almost fully vertical and then erupting into a cloud of dust and smoke. >> i was watching it come in and my initial reaction was that it was trying to divert the landing. >> reporter: officials say the pilot tried to increase speed,

5:05am
summer camhere in california. more than a dozen are still hospitalized, two of them paralyzed, still such a violent crash and so few injuries and deaths. >> it is nothing short of a miracle that we had literally 123 people walk away from this. >> reporter: a miracle prompting many questions. now heading to the tragedy of all this is one of the young woman killed the coroner here says that she may have been hit by an emergency vehicle. firefighters reported that to them when they brought her in. it's still not clear, though, if she was hit by a vehicle was it that that killed her or the plane crash itself. but, confusion and chaos here in a very terrible scene. chris sph. >> all right, miguel, have to figure that out. but the big question remains, why did this happen? back with mary. tons of experience with this. here is the video. the plane is coming down and going to assess what you guys call the attitude of the plane.
5:06am
now, as we see it coming down, quick question about context. there was equipment that wasn't working on this runway, right? an automated system to help land? >> the automated instrument was out and the pilot should have been aware of it. you always check those. >> you check that box, not why this happened? >> way before you check this box. >> the experience we keep talking about. thousands of hours flying, but only 40 some odd hours flying this plane. relevant? >> very, very relevant. not only flying this plane, but flying this plane with visual. not flying with auto pilot. this is going to be different and you're coming in over water in san francisco. that affects your sink rate. how fast your plane is going to come down. >> the at altitude of the plane, too slow or low? >> is your nose up or down.
5:07am
this is extremely important because it has a nose-up attitude and two seconds later they're going to get a stick shaker and that's going to tell you that your plane is stalling and you're in eminent danger of losing it. >> move through and you'll make the point this plane is waiting to take off and this landing is going to take off after it. >> he is already down on the ground and already in the crash sequence. this plane is waiting to taxi on to the runway to take off. you can see how far back this happened before you ever should have touched down. you should have touched down about here. >> this is the evidence of what is going to be a tragedy. as this runs through, we know what happens, it hits and the tail flies off and it moves around and luckily lands on its belly so people can survive. you say that was the pivotal moment when it lded back on the belly, that's why people walk away. >> this is a very important sequence in this video because this is not smoke. right here is dust from the runway or the sides of the runway. had this been smoke, these people didn't stand as much a
5:08am
chance. this is not a fire and then the plane flips up, but it lands on its belly. they have access to the emergency chutes, the doors, they can get out and the flight attendants can start pushing people out the doors. >> one thing we wanted to look at with the photos here, if we can go to them. photos of the runway. at the last one of these photos, we see the debris field as it comes down. the last one, you see this tail. when you see the fuse lodlage oe plane. the integrity of the aircraft. it will be one of the questions. anything worthy of note? >> big, strong aircraft like this, they're tough and they have great aircraft integrity and they will look at this bulk head here and look to see if the impact is such it should have survived or such a strong impact, no, you cannot expect the plane to survive and that is the bulk head here that is gone from the back of the plane and
5:09am
they will be looking in that to see if there is anything, perhaps, it would not have affected the crash, but increased survivability. >> being too low is what this is about? >> that is what this is about. >> kate? >> thanks. explosive new developments out of egypt. witnesses report 42 people are dead and more than 300 wounded in cairo after the egyptian military, some say opened fire on supporters of the ousted president. two egyptian soldiers had been kidnapped. reza sayah is in egypt. this seems to be developing every hour. what is the latest? >> bloody monday morning in cairo, kate. unless something changes. this is a clash between supporters of the ousted president, mohamed morsi took
5:10am
place before dawn in front of the presidential headquarters. this is where he is being held in custody. incredibly difficult to figure out what happened. who fired first because all sorts of conflicting reports. the arm aed forces, they say it was an armed terrorist group that fired first. they released video showing them fire on protesters. protesters saying, no, we were not armed. security forces shot first. they released their own video. the aftermath, bloody and chaotic. hundreds of the victims raced to a nearby field hospital, many of the fatalities, at least 42 placed on the ground covered with blankets and now we wait for the fallout from this and some of it is already coming. the ultraconservative islamic group, the party that was such a critical part of the coalition here charged with establishing a transitional government. they pulled out of this, suspended talks condemning this incident today and now we see
5:11am
where this turmoil goes in the coming days. chris, kate? >> all right, reza, thank you so much. he has been working that story and changes every day. something new coming out of egypt. >> egypt a developing situation, here at home and also in canada a developing situation. the quote "it looks like a war zone" that's how the canadian prime minister describes a small town where a freight train derails. killed at least five people. the death toll is expected to rise as the search continues for nearly 40 people still missing at this hour. paula newton is in quebec. paula, what do we know? >> chris in the last hour an update from police and they have not been able to get to the site to search for the missing, but they do expect to get there soon and more evacuees will be allowed back home. the problem, chris, what lies ahead for this small town? absolutely grim as they try to piece together exactly how this happened.
5:12am
for too many there was simply no escape. inferno so intense, it incinerated everything in its path. minutes before the unmanned run away train pulling 72 tankers filled i crude oil went careening into the town and derailed with unimaginable consequences. earth shaking explosions followed, the fire burning for a full 36 hours. the devastation was apocalyptic, the silence ominous. there was no word of sons and daughters who never made it home, friends and family that, yes, vanished. town officials say some were likely vaporized by the sheer intensity of the blaze. >> we are working hand-in-hand with the coroner's office and with the victim unit to talk with the families. all of the bodies were transported to the montreal

5:14am
people were enjoying a warm summer's night. and that's where the fears for this town really lie. there was a bar, people outside, inside, having a drink. no one in this town has heard from anyone who they know was at that bar at that time in the evening. chris and kate, it's going to be a long day today. the very first time that the team will be able to get in there and start that crucial search for the missing. >> paula, thank you very much. in a town that size, nobody will be spared by the loss. everybody will know somebody or have something affected. >> when you see the video and hear that story that paula was telling. some of those folks, they had no chance when that was coming right at them. a lot of news developing at this hour. let's get straight to michaela's other headlines. >> an ntsb go team going to alaska investigating another airplane crash southwest of anchorage killing ten people. the air taxi was fully engulfed in flames by the time the faa

5:17am
you have had a long couple days, that is for sure. thank you for joining me this morning. i want to ask you right away. the last numbers we have heard, your hospital has taken in the most from the crash. the last i heard 17 still in the hospital, 6 in critical condition. what is your latest update on the patients? >> yes, that is correct, kate. we do still have six in critical condition. we have several people who are waiting to surgery today, three from the crash. two more went under surgery yesterday. i can't give you the exact number who will be discharged today, but we still have a number of people who will need surgery and multiple surgeries, actually, on some of these patients. >> we have heard that one child was in critical condition. what is the update on this child? what injury did he or she sustain? >> i'm not really at liberty to release the nature of the injuries in individual patients, but there is a child who did
5:18am
sustain some severe injuries and underwent surgery yesterday. >> so, one of the main injuries that you're seeing coming in from this crash seen were spinal injuries. talk to me about that. what type of impact are we talking about, doctor? have you seen anything like this before? >> we have seen this type of injuries, but not this many people with this type of injuries all at once. this is a severe flexion injury that happens when someone is restrained and comes up against a movable object and they flex forward and then flex back again and we're seeing spinal cord disruption, as well as spinal column disruption. almost, i would say, 50% of the people that we admitted to the hospital have at least one spinal fracture. not all of them are paralyzed, but some of them are. this is the type of injury you see when you wear a lap belt in a car in the back seat without
5:19am
wearing the harness. most cars have the shoulder belts to protect us from this kind of injury. >> also some serious road rash some of these patients have been suffering. does that indicate to you, when i hear road rash, that is normally a motorcycle accident i heard of. but this indicates that some of these folks were dragged down the runway? >> i'm not sure what they were dragged over, but it certainly looked like road rash to us. this is a type of rash that we see with people who abandon motorcycle crash and haven't been wearing leathers and get dragged over the pavement. we were surprised to see these kind of injuries. we were expecting burns, but most people were taken out of the plane before it went on fire. >> every patient's recovery is going to be very different, especially those suffering paralys paralysis. a very long recovery ahead of them. what can you say the type of recovery and recuperation these patients are going to be facing? >> as you say, everybody's
5:20am
different. we do have patients with head trauma. their recovery could be months and months and maybe not even to full recovery. certainly, the patients who are critical in the icu have undergone surgery have to recover from their abdominal and thoracic surgery first and then the rehab with patients who are paralyzed for life. >> chief of surgery at san francisco general, you have done such an amazing job already and just thankful that the patients made it to you in time, trying to limit the injuries that they're suffering in the recovery time they're going to have. doctor, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. >> of course. amazing. i even read that she said, she is thankful and many of the doctors are thankful that they triaged so well on site because they were able to keep the patients stable before getting them to the hospital. >> the mishaps that led to the crash, response was amazing both inside the plane and outside.

5:24am
welcome back to "new day" everybody. in less than an hour, what could be the most critical week of the george zimmerman murder trial gets back under way. friday jurors heard emotional testimony from the mothers of trayvon martin and george zimmerman. both thinking it was their son screaming on that 911 call. the big question, can the defense prove zimmerman was defending his life when trayvon martin was killed? let's bring in criminal defense attorney mark. the burden is on the prosecution, what went into
5:25am
that? >> they went ahead and assessed that the state made a better case than they expected them to. when we heard it at the end of the state cisand the beginning of the defense's case. who is that voice? who is the one screaming help, help, help. that's how they started their case off. i think they're going to go ahead and plug up a few holes that they believe the state had created and they can go ahead and make a clean, a clean defense. i think we'll see about another three days of testimony. i don't expect the defense to put on a long case. i think we'll see this going to the jury some time this week. >> when you look at the defense case in proving self-defense. what do you believe is the biggest obstacle to them? >> for the defense is the emotional part. all the other, all the other things that are surrounding this that are really not in the courtroom. jury is very aware of this. you know, all the special jury
5:26am
selection, the sequuquesteratio. they know something is going on, although they were relatively uninformed about this case. the emotional aspect and all the consequences that they know that this verdict will bring in society once it's rendered. i think those intangibles are the real issue. this is a very hard case for the state to prove. proving a case beyond a reasonable doubt with what we heard everything from the medical examiner to the lead investigator who all said very favorable things for the defense. this is a hard case under normal circumstances for the state. >> looking at it in this way, just kind of a bare analysis. you have a man who has proven on the record at trial, said ugly things about people like trayvon martin, ignored the 911 call operator saying, stay in the
5:27am
car. not just had a gun, which he was legally able to have but had it loaded with a round in the chamber and an altercation started. it is open to who started and certainly zimmerman was in it and trayvon martin without a weapon winds up dead. on those facts why do you believe it is tough for the prosecution to get a conviction of some kind? >> well, because there's doubts in many people's minds about the scenario you just laid out. what you just laid out is what the state hopes to prove. the malice and aforethought and the evil intent is, i think, by most analysts' opinion is going to be chal a ngeilenging for th. the best option is to go for the manslaughter. this was a complete overreaction. this was a negligent shooting that did not need to take place. i think that's the state's best play. they could possibly overshoot this and possibly overcharge it. with that said, remember, the scenario you just laid out is an
5:28am
excellent scenario for the sd state, but everything you stated, counterpoints by the defense. many, if not most, by the state's own witnesses on cross-examination that, in fact, there is a question as to who confronted who. there is a question to who was on the bottom. all these things create reasonable doubt and, remember, a draw does not win it for a prosecution in a criminal prosecution. they have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, of course. when you get a draw in any case that is to the benefit of the defense. >> mark nejame, thank you very much for setting up both sides of this for us. appreciate it, look forward to talking to you, again. >> you, too. >> kate? coming up, the crash of 214. we'll show you what the experts say is the best way to improve your chances to survive a crash landing like the one we saw in san francisco. your seat assignment makes all the difference. and, also, we wouldn't think

5:34am
catching dozens and dozens of compliments to she's a good friend to a beautiful person. the page was started by a senior. take a listen. >> i wanted to make a page like that so people can communicate that extra nice thing to one another and give compliments to thank people for being who they are. >> we always think of put downs, but we try to teach our kids put ups. that is the lesson he takes to heart. the page was done anonymous for more than a year. he said he didn't want the page to end just because he was leaving so he handed it off so the love could continue. >> how beautiful. especially because all we ever heard is online anonymously is always mean stuff and always brutal. >> and it's culture.n online. we talk to you about bullying all the time and dwelling on the horrible parts. the good stuff today is a lesson that we could change culture and make it good as well as we can make it bad.
5:35am
let us know, how is your community helping one another? where is the good story so that we can tell it to you. what is our website? cnnnewday. >> newdaycnn.com. i love you, despite the fact you can never get it right. let's get back to our big story. terrifying images of the crash are flooding in this morning. that crash at san francisco airport overnight. one thing to keep in mind, the vast majority of passengers survived, which is one of the most amazing things about this when you see these pictures. if you're ever in a similar situation, there are steps you can take to improve your chance of survival. cnn's pamela brown is joining us now with more on that. unfortunately, you do have to talk about this. no one wants to think about it, but there it is. >> especially nervous fliers like myself. many of us have been there and we book a flight and then looking at a seating chart. what you choose could be the difference whether or not you survive a plane crash.
5:36am
as we learn in saturday's crash in san francisco, what many of us believe the safest seat in the house may not be. your odds are higher depending on where you sit. after seeing this shocking video of asiana flight 214 crash landing, it's remarkable how many passengers exited the aircraft unharmed. but did the location of passenger seats onboard the airplane leave some safer than others? an analysis done on 20 crashes, data showed those sitting closest to the cockpit are least safe with a survival rate of 59%. 56% in the middle section of the plane survived and the rear cabin had a 69% survival rate. this plane landed short of the runway ripping off the tail. the two chinese teens killed in the crash were sitting in the back half of the plane. >> i would love to say that you can sit in the tail of the aircraft and you might be safer,
5:37am
but we've seen now in this particular event the tail struck on the arrival. we've seen the first class section of the aircraft get hit. we've seen fire erupt in the middle part of the cabin. really, there's no specific safest place to sit in the aircraft. >> your best bet, according to aviation experts, sit as close to the exit row as possible. last year the discovery channel crashed a jetliner in a row mem area on purpose so they can review flight safety even further. one big improvement over the last decade, stronger seats. >> the seats have gone from a 9 g to 16 g rating. which means 16 times the strength of gravity. when the seats don't move around the inside the aircraft, the survivability is much greater. >> reporter: worth mentioning, it appears they did not get a warning to embrace for the crash landing.
5:38am
typically that helps reduce head and lower back incidents. the latest incident may make some of us more fearful of flying. even a horrible plane crash can be survivable. the survival rate for serious crashes is more than 50%. the overall survival rate for plane crashes, 96%. experts say it's never been safer to fly. >> one thing that you pointed out in the piece and mary has pointed out to us is that it's the seats. they improved, how strong the seats are and you see that in the pictures from the ntsb. a lot of seats. they were able to handle that impact. >> they were secure and they were anchored. before, before these upgrades and improvements, they would become unhinged and fly around. so, it is safer and also the planes are safer, the building, the engineering, there's flame proof materials in the cabin and all these things help. >> we dwell on the crashes when they happen. it bears repeating, 1 in 45 million chance of getting into a
5:39am
plane crash. lightning 1 in 750,000. not going to happen either, just goes to show how safe air travel is. >> that's true. coming up next on "new day," we all know distracted driving is dangerous. many laws telling us that. what about walking and texting. why emergency rooms are filling up with people who can't put their cell phones down even when they're walking down the street. and the original "bay watch" hunk has done it again. an awesome commercial really captures the essence of the hoff. we'll talk to the man himself. >> i sense some envy there. >> look at his hair. mine was earned in djibouti, africa. 2004. vietnam in 1972.

something might slow you down. it is called falling in a fountain. you heard of distracted driving and how dangerous it is, what about distracted walking? are you a victim of this? just how serious a problem it actually is and how it could become a lot worse. cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen is live in atlanta, not texting while reporting. it's also very dangerous, elizabeth. >> right, i try not to do that, ever. but, kate, so many people walk and text, but after you see this, you may never do it again. you're walking, you're walking and, bam, you're hurting. that's the danger of talking or texting on your cell phone while walking. >> it's an epidemic. >> reporter: watch as this lady is so focused on her phone she
5:44am
stumbles into a fountain. this woman falls 20 feet into a sink hole. this man is so distracted on his cell, he doesn't see a bear coming at him. this woman fell off this pier, her.coast guard had to rescue >> i feel really embarrassed and i'm just so grateful to be alive. >> reporter: a new study of emergency rooms says distracted walking injuries increased nearly 600% from 2005 to 2010. people dislocated shoulders, broke arm as and legs and got concussions and worse. a patient at this new york city hospital ended up in a coma. >> there was a young lady who was texting while she was crossing the street and got hit by a car. >> reporter: in just minutes, our cameras caught dozens of distracted walkers. this guy was so absorbed by his text, we followed him for a half a block before he noticed us. we're doing a story about distracted walking. >> okay, i guess i'm doing that
5:45am
right now. >> reporter: are you guilty as charged? >> yes. >> reporter: the solution, of course, is stand still while you text, preferably off to the side. easier said than done. >> you're not going to stop and text and walk again. you'll never get anywhere that way. >> reporter: now, it's not just texting. people are using all sorts of apps. i stopped one woman and i said, are you texting while walking and she said, no, i wasn't texting, i was using instagram. >> exactly, levels of distraction. chris, of course, thinks he is a more evolved human being. >> i'm taking the other side on this one. >> what is it? >> texting and driving, i get it. >> texting and driving, yeah. >> walking and texting, i'm going, nope, nope. >> are you going switzerland on this. >> the pc police. i'm going to text and i'm going to walk. >> i hope you don't trip, chris. i'll be there to catch you. >> i'll be following him with a camera and i'll bring it to you. very important to know, though, elizabeth.
